    Okay, if you don't own any of these companies...what are some core robotics plays and which would you recommend and why?

    Hello Scott,

    I'm currently developing an investment strategy for the technology, but I know I want exposure to mobile robotics, industrial armature bots, and cognitive computing. Right now I'm looking at Adept Technologies, ABB Ltd., and IBM. I have some reservations about each I'm trying to evaluate.

    For a complete list of companies, I'd check out the RBR 50: http://www.roboticsbusinessreview.com/rbr50. That will show you all of the publicly traded companies available for investment. I'm going to do an article series once I get some companies pinpointed, so be sure to check back.

    Cheers,

    Blake

    Hey, thanks for the leads! I'll be very interested to see what you come up with as I am interested in this technology. Also, I think others will appreciate your efforts to elaborate here too ...

    Biotech has hit the ground running.....robotics, AI (weak and strong) will come along ....it would be nice to get in early on some strong companies in this space.
